A word from Lavo
Located directly on Las Vegas Boulevard, LAVO features 20-foot ceilings,low chandeliers and a terrace overlooking the famed Las Vegas Strip.

Corporate Executive Chef Ralph Scamardella and his experienced team treat guests to a culinary voyage with selections of classic Italian dishes. Signature highlights include the one-pound Kobe Meatballs, served with sausage ragu, whipped fresh ricotta or salad and a garlic crostini; and some of the best pizzas in Las Vegas, including the Lobster Scampi Pizza, baked straight from a wood burning brick oven.

With the restaurant and terrace open 7 nights a week at 5 p.m., LAVO has quickly become a "must-go" destination for those who love great food, music and a high-quality dining experience.

  • "The good was delicious - you just try the amazing mouthwatering meatballs! Homemade pasta too. It was great."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The food is good but for the price it could be better. The restaurant itself is really cool. It has a very fancy look that is nice and the bathrooms are fancy and have cool sinks. The meal could have been better but the thing I loved was the dessert. The oreo zeppole was awesome if you come here its a must have to get!"

  • "My husband had been raving about this Las Vegas restaurant find for months! We finally made it there together and LAVO did not disappoint! The meatball and the seafood plateau were unforgettable!!!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This restaurant is very limited in their selection of food. They are known for their Kobe Meatballs which weren't to die for, but they weren't bad either. Overall nice experience, but food wise, it is not a restaurant I would go to again."

  • "Hip atmosphere, very good service and great food. If your a fan of veal pram, you have to have their version on the bone. Always a stop for me when in vegas."

  • "The worst Italian food and service I have ever had."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We were on time for our reservation and had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Then it took forever for our food to get to our table after it was ordered (1 hour) and for us to receive our bill (20 minutes). The entire dining experience was over 2 1/2 hours, which is far too long."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Planned for a special night out with friends... reservation was for 7:30. We were seated at 8:15. 20 minutes for waiter to take our wine order and dinner took 2.5 hours - although we ordered apps, salads, dinner and dessert - there was much waiting in between and we had to pour our own wine from the bottle. food was salty and one of the 3 meals had to go back (veal was tough) - when it was brought back out it was chicken - they decided the veal was as tender as it was going to get (I've had beautiful buttery tender veal - this wasn't it). After the "chicken" was brought out - no one ever returned to check on wether it was satisfactory. The atmosphere was great - dj was on his game... but everything else fell short. Won't go back."

  • "Terrible service since we arrive. We had reservation for 945, we had to wait 45 min to get a table, didnt care to make us wait. We had to asked many times to the host what was going on with the table. She told us to wait.When we had the table,the waiter service was terrible. We had to be asking for water many times, other waiters that had pitchers with water didnt serve us. We saw other tables with excellent waiters service. Very bad service in general"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We just went back to Lavo after a couple of years with a group expecting good pasta and a fun scene. The appetizers were ok but the meals were terrible! Also, we waited over 40 minutes for our table that was empty the entire time. Overall, it was the only meal in Vegas that we had that disappointed us."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food here is great and you have to order the meatballs"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I went twice while on my trip because it was so great. Louie salad and 20 layer cake are the best! Waiters are the friendliest!!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Seafood pasta options were extensive. Wouldn't recommend if looking for chicken dish. Veal parmigiana was really good however was serviced with nothing else. Usually get a side of pasta with this dish. Calamari was superb. Very light and flavorful."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The Lobster Bisque was to die for! Service was on point. They make you feel like a VIP! Go there!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Service is good, atmosphere just ok. Sat at a table near waiting area and felt crowded. There was a group of 15 people they did not seat until entire party arrived. Felt like I was having dinner with them. Food was okay...nothing spectacular."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I took a big group to Lavo for my girlfriend's birthday. The ambiance was great, our server was excellent and very attentive, and the food was delicious and worth the price. They even brought out a birthday dessert with a candle in it for my girlfriend and didn't charge us for it. Would go there again in a heartbeat!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Waited for 35 minutes after my reservation time for a table to open up even though I was told it would be a very short wait. Food was good though it was a bit salty. I ordered a manhattan and it came in a tumbler with ice which is not correct."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Have never been disappointed. Always very good good and service!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Overall, a pretty good dining experience. Nice vibe, good service, but a bit overpriced for what you get. $24 for Pasta Marinara is a bit steep IMO. $6 for an extra serving of garlic bread is flat out unreasonable. The Meatball appetizer was definitely the highlight."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "All of the food was amazing but the risotto was the best I have had in my life. My girlfriend even teased me that she was going to leave me for whatever chef prepared it."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "This place was so terrible. I cant believe we wasted a cab ride to go over there."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The service we got was on point! We went for a special occasion. We got seated and served right away. They acknowledged that it was a special occasion. The food on the other hand not that impressive but I would definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Being a first time guest at LAVO- I was overwelmed with the appetizing options. It was so delicious that we were stuffed after our appetizers. The meatballs and eggplant topped out list. The sides are not to be overlooked, the corn and mushrooms were to die for!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "really nice restaurant. food was tasty and waiter service great. not so much for the hostess service, se was kind of rude. everything else was nice, the place was kind of alone, I guess because of the time (9.30pm is early in Vegas)"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Not sure if it was an off night in the kitchen. But the clams were salty. The pasta with undercooked. The veal was extremely salty. The service was extremely slow. Never cleared the table between courses. Very disappointing as we were celebrating a very special birthday for my best friend"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I thought lavo couldn't surpass their meatballs.. Then I discovered the Oreo deserts I will be back"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Great vegan selections, steaks, seafood pasta everything! You will pay a lot but consider the location! Inside is fabulous nightclub the atmosphere, or patio is best location, view on strip! 1st class service. "

  • "We ate here on our last night in Vegas i have travelled to this city many times and eaten in alot of the restaurants and the standards are high, Lavo's menu looked great and as we were staying in the Venetian i thought we would check it out. The meatball appetiser was the speciality and i have to say was superb, the service was great at this point. Once we finished the appetiser this is when it went down hill within seconds our main course was brought out far too early we had no time to digest the huge appetiser. We sent the food back and asked to wait at least 15 - 20 mins until our next dish? Sadly this seemed to have been taken offensively as the food that followed was awful bland, overcooked and of a diner standard we returned 1 dish. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "If you walk out of here hungry, something's wrong. Portions are very big and quality is great. Kobe meatballs are incredible. Al dente pasta and sauces are a must try. Varied menu with something for everyone. Extensive wine list too. Worthwhile Italian restaurant in a town of mostly restaurant mediocrity. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Food was average, and service was disappointing. After forgetting one entree, the waitress response was, "Where's your meal? Oh, sorry." It came eventually ... after everyone else was finished. After a major screw - up like this, the restaurant seemed not to care and even had the nerve to compute on the bill, for our convenience, how much a 22% tip would be. This place is over - priced, very noisy, and pretentious."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We love Lavo, it's one of our favorite restaurants while in Las Vegas. We had the pleasure of treating my daughter and her girlfriend to dinner and they fell in love too. The food is always consistently very good, always pleasant wait staff, and Roger the mixologist makes an awesome drink! Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Long story short I was able to get us in for the time we wanted on a Saturday night with around 24 hours notice and that was just the start of good things with LAVO. The staff was attentive, but not overbearing and made us all feel comfortable after answering menu questions and honoring our special request. The garlic bread with sauce was by far the best I have had from an Italian restaurant, our drinks appeared quickly and never ran dry, our appetizers arrived hot and tasted AMAZING, then our entrees came out absolutely as ordered and ever single person at the table could not stop talking about how good theirs was. The Meatball app is a must, along with the chicken park, spaghetti bolognese and much more. you must try LAVO!!!"

  • "I used to go to lavo all the time but this last time was the last straw. The waiter didn't know much about the menu or options lavo had for drinks. On top of that every person 3 didn't like anything we had. So we all left unhappy after spending 500 bucks which makes this over priced for the quality. I'm sad to say a once good gem is no more. I recommend you go to olives."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The waiter was extremely unattentive and was busy the entire time flirting with two young female customers at another table. He didn't check back with us once. "
